New Mexico assessments meet state and federal requirements for Title I, Title II and Title III. These assessments are used for a variety of purposes including High School Graduation, School Grading, and NMTeach Educator Evaluation.

The annual state assessment (formerly SBA, now PARCC) is an essential part of measuring and supporting students' academic growth. New Mexico's alternate assessments (NMAPA and NCSC) ensure that students with disabilities receive meaningful feedback on academic progress and can fully participate in school and teacher accountability. The annual language fluency assessment (Access for ELLsĀ®) assists students transitioning into English only classrooms and helps bilingual and multicultural program implement the most successful strategies.
